We have been so excited for this couple’s Maui Beach Elopement, and we’re not the only ones who were eagerly awaiting its arrival! Paula arrived with three lady guests, she was so nervous and Debbie (her brother-in-law’s wife) said aloud, “FINALLY!” I asked, “Why finally?” They all laughed and Paula replied, “We’ve been together for 20 years!” lol! So it’s definitely about time they got married.
Before heading to the beach, Paula added a personal touch to her bouquet. She attached a handkerchief her great grandmother made, a pink ribbon, and pin. It was beautiful and she absolutely loved her bouquet!
It was a warm afternoon and the waves were small making the crashing sounds nice and subtle during their ceremony. It was a beautiful Maui Beach Elopement! After saying “I do” and signing the marriage license it was time for a very special surprise.
A Special Surprise
Kimo gathered all the guests and asked do we have any married couples here? And two couples raised their hands. Then he asked, “Why don’t we renew your vows right here and now?” Everyone laughed and said yes without hesitation!
Kimo then continued by saying “We are gathered here today to celebrate the marriage of Paula and Damian. Because of their love for you, they’d like to honor your marriages by allowing you to reaffirm your love for one another on this joyous day and in this beautiful setting!”
John & Debbie and Kelly & Joe were super surprised! And it was funny because Damian’s niece and nephew were also in on the surprise and didn’t say a word. More tears were shed throughout the whole group during the vow renewal ceremonies!
A Day to Remember
Paula and Damian made this experience one to remember! And we are so glad we could be part of it. Thank you, both, for sharing such a special day with Simple Maui Wedding! We loved getting to celebrate with you and wish you all the best on the journey ahead. Congratulations and Warm Aloha!
